Vocabulary of the Greek NT

lit. ";a rod-holder,"; is supplied by Wilcken in P Par 24.6 (B.C. 164) (= UPZ i. p. 123) τῶν δ᾽ ἐκ τοῦ ἱεροῦ ῥαβδο [ῦχός τις Ζωίλος, with reference to a ";temple-attendant"; in the Serapeum at Memphis. For this usage (as distinguished from a lictor or attendant on Roman magistrates, as in Acts 16:35; Acts 16:38) he refers to a ῥαβδοῦχος in the Roman Serapis worship in IG XIV. 1027, and to the ῥαβδοῦχοι in the temple service of Apollo in Syll 790 (= .3 1157).24 (c. B.C. 100 ?) whose duty is to keep in order the temple precincts—οἳ καὶ ἐχέτωσαν ἐξουσίαν κωλύειν τὸν ἀκοσμοῦντα. In P Oxy XIV. 1626.9 (A.D. 325) the reference is again to an official of low rank who fills the single post of ῥαβδοῦχος of certain animals—χώραν μίαν ῥαβδούχου ἑνὸς τῶν αὐτῶν ζῷων : see the editors’ note, and cf. ib. 1750.12 (A.D. 306) and ib. XVI. 1905.16 (iv/v A.D.). Cf. the word ῥαβδοφόρος in P Petr II. 8(2) (c).9 (B.C. 246) and P Par 66.18 (iii/B.C.). In the latter case the editor suggests that ῥαβδοφόροι, may not be more than ";conductors of works,"; but for the possibility that ";police"; were intended see Archiv vi. p. 416.

For the subst. ῥαβδουχία cf. P Oxy XVI. 1626.21 (A.D. 325), and BGU I. 244.14 (time of Gallienus).
